Throughout history, there has been an individual or group of humans that believed that they were of a higher class than the minority. Society has functioned this way even all the way back to the cavemen. This belief has proven to be horrific and can be proven through certain events. Take a look back through history at the Holocaust, slavery, women’s suffrage, World War II, and segregation. These events are only a handful of the many to show this. Each particular one of these events has one thing in common, and that is a lack of equality.
One of the most powerful and strongest countries on this globe has certainly had an issue with a lack of equality. What’s so hard to understand is how a country who was founded on the fact that all men are created equal could have such a past. A country who promotes democracy throughout the world! How could the nation of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have denied (and is still denying so many walks of life?) Maybe one would have to look at the definition of man.
There once lived a man who held great power. This man had a vision of perfection. Wherever perfection lies, there is imperfection. Unfortunately, as a result of Hitler's power and philosophy of perfection, there was genocide in the country of Germany. This would lead to the second world war. Innocent souls were murdered as a result of something they had no control over, their appearance. Millions of people died over the fact that they were not accepted in society. Not being accepted into society has been the story of history. It can be traced back to when the Native American population came close to extinction as a result of the Europeans that invaded their home. Segregation and discrimination against certain races and groups surely isn’t a secret either. This is such an issue because the effects could be catastrophic. It deprives someone of their natural born rights! The rights men like John Adams, John Hancock, and Thomas Paine fought for!
If we look at the facts of history, particularly in American history, there has been a lack of equality for races...
